Happy Birthday, America! Of all the cities I’ve ever been, Washington DC is my absolute favorite, and celebrating America’s birthday in the heart of our country is hands down the best. Doesn’t the 4th of July bring around all the feels?! It’s summer and it’s sunny (usually) and you eat the best food and you talk about our history and our Founding Fathers and how much you love America and you watch fireworks and you realize that you’re living your American Dream. <3
Both Nick and I have been to the The Capitol Fourth in the past because we’ve both lived in DC, but we’ve never been able to go together. As soon as we got to DC, we called our friend Ellen, who we both worked with in the Senate a few years back, to see if she was going. Of course she was. She kind of knows what she’s doing around DC. 🙂 Anyways, we were able to go join her and her friends on the lawn outside the Capitol Building and we had the best views!
Also, we made it on PBS! A few people texted me that they saw me. Even one cute lady wrote on my Instagram that she recognized me from some of my hair tutorials and she saw me on PBS. SO COOL!!!
Anyways, we danced the night away and sang along with The Beach Boys, Kellie Pickler, Trace Adkins and more. As the night grew darker, we could see the fireworks over by the Washington Monument. It was perfect.
God bless America!
PS. Here are the links my outfit below. I was able to link the exact shirt I am wearing. I found it in plus sizes, but I think I just got the smallest one they had, and it’s turned out to be my favorite shirt. It’s so comfortable and the flower details are so cute. Also, throwing Nick’s shirt in there too because I love the little flag details. Everything is under $20, too! XOXO
